Ulick O'Connor retells in magnificent style the great legends of Ireland—the epic story of Cuchulain, the sorrowful histories of the Children of Lir and of Deirdre, St Patrick's journeys across Ireland, the tale of the Druid and his soul, the legend of Ossian's journey to the Land of Youth, and last of all a beautiful account of the kindness of Countess Cathleen O'Shea. The book is illustrated with 35 full page colour paintings by Pauline Bewick.
